James Blagden’s Short Animation: Dock Ellis & The LSD No-No

November 19, 2009

“I didn’t see the hitters, all i could care, was if they was on the right side …or the left side” – Dock Ellis


No Mas hired the funky, intelligent painter James Blagden to do an animation based on Dock Ellis’s 1970 no-hitter over the Padres. The result is amazing, Blagden does an incredible job re-imagining what might have happened that day on the mound. The accompanying voice over comes from a 2008 NPR interview in which Ellis describes being “as high as a Georgia pine” hahaa, worth a watch, the animation is hilarious:
